outdoor NURSERY

We are a full time outdoor education nursery for children aged 2-5 years old operating from 8am until 5.30pm.


Our aim is to help our children have the best possible start to life physically, emotionally and cognitively. Our high staff to child ratios 1:4  with amazing educators allows for a very close and engaged experience for our children helping them thrive. We believe that children are continually learning from their surroundings and the outdoors is the perfect place for them to do so whilst creating a connection to nature in the community that gives an important sense of belonging to each other and their natural environment.

Combining the Early Years Framework Stage (EYFS) curriculum with outdoor, child-directed play, our nursery sessions give children the opportunity to grow and learn in a practical, hands-on way. Our qualified practitioners curate engaging sessions that spark the imagination and allow children to thrive in all seven stages outlined by the EYFS curriculum to help shape their formative years and prepare them for life. We prioritise the following areas for development:

  • Building lifelong cognitive foundations for physical and mental health
  • Curious learning and creativity
  • Expression unique to each child
